Can't detect CPU frequency variation for AMD Athlon II X2

Hi...

(Please excuse my English)

I'm really appriciate your CPUMon, and used CPUMon very usefully.
However, recently I upgraded my computer system, and then CPUmon
is operating incorrectly. Here is my new computer system brief spec.

CPU : AMD Athlon II X2 Regor 245
Mainboard : Biostar GF8200 M2G+
OS : win XP pro sp3

Problem is CPUMon doesn't detect CPU frequency variation, though
I'm applying AMD Cool'nQuiet feature. Thus CPUMon always shows
(almostly) same CPU frequency on my new computer system.
Actually CPU clock is varying betwen 800MHz~2900MHz, which can
easily be verified by other CPU check program like CPU-z.

Please fix this problem.
Thank you very much again for you good software.

Have a nice day...

Thank you for reporting. Couple of other users have reported an identical problem on AMD Athlon II X2. Unfortunately, I don't have this type of processor on hand, and can't really figure out what causes this behavior.

Could you try another monitoring tool called SpeedSwitchXP? Tell me whether it will or will not show correct frequency. If it works correctly, I could have a look at the source code of this program to find out how it does it.

Sorry for my late response.
I tried SpeedSwitchXP, but SpeedSwitchXP couldn't detect correct CPU frequency also.

In the settings it has a selection of 3 methods for detecting CPU speed. Have you tried all 3 methods?
